Ways to Love Lake of the Ozarks
Order a custard creation
When you pull into Randy's Frozen Custard in Osage Beach, ignore the big vanilla soft-serve on the sign. Nothing wrong with a humble swirl cone, but Randy's has so much more to offer. The friendly kids working the windows happily answer questions from newbies ("What's a concrete?") before blending fresh raspberries, candy bars or pie filling into dense custard.
The star here is the Ozark Turtle Sundae (left), a gooey concoction crowned with a generous handful of whole toasted pecans (no flavorless, unidentified chopped nuts at this place). Don't be surprised to find yourself scraping the last streaks of fudge and caramel from the cup.
